HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in South Hampstead and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the South Hampstead property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the South Hampstead property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of bugs in the dining room. Will the Full Structural Survey investigate this?

Pests like rats may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in South Hampstead.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. An affected house may not always be easy to identify.

For example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for a serious infestation may include traps and destruction of tainted materials.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a South Hampstead structure with a loft conversion - What will our building surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This is a common concern for purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. A large number of properties can be blighted by damage to the roof, including. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the concrete tiles to the parapet walls. The building surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like wholesale replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a South Hampstead roofing specialist can provide one.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when purchasing a building in the region a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites take many forms including domestic waste. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include methane gas generation .

Surveyors will consider any structural issues resulting from the site. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological database in addition to Camden Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
